Sobell's closed what do we do?

lyrics

I been training I'm getting stronger
and my stances they're getting longer
Kibachi so long it's impractical
I wave my hand shout ha! it's tactical
my arms it's like they're elastic
blocking striking punching swiftly
up in close the elbows and knees
I'm making progress but...oh please

Sobell's closed what can we do?
Press up press ups on a chat group?
no more sparring no more kata no more
"silence sempi no more chatter"
no more standing around in lines
waiting patiently to explode
no more bouncing on my toes
no more treating friends like foes

hwah Kiai, louder ha!
don't know your names I know how you spar
creeping forward smiling, smiling
it's about to get violent but then
bang, swept on the mat, move like a cat,
wrestle like sumo but who knows I rap?
what the hell's that? zen cuts a dach
more like a dodgy datchi in fact

better be training and training some more
the army outside and it's martial law
no leisure we use corridors
you can do sit ups your living room floor

we gotta maintain our health
so we're practicing by ourselves
I gotta maintain my health
so I'm shadow boxing myself

I don't care if you think I've gone mad mate
what you wanna sit round and feel sad great,
me I see how I can practice
moving silently like shadow tactics

tip toeing I'm creeping and sneaking around
compete with my cat, and then strike like a hound
hide in the shower now turn out the light
wait for an hour in silence at night

pres up press up jump jump
double burpy I land with a thump
the neighbour's are knocking their beating the wall
hearing these sounds like I'm kicking a ball

I'm kicking the air cocomi I think
follow up shurageri mind out for the sink
Sobell's closed what can we do?
we do what we do what we always do

we gotta maintain our health
so we're practicing by ourselves
I gotta maintain my health
so I'm shadow boxing myself
